5 Easy DIY Christmas Gifts

I’m diving back into the archives of the blog to share some of my all time favorite Christmas projects with you. These projects are all tried and true, and can be made in a single afternoon. Explore the links below to find each in depth tutorial!

Hand Painted and Cured Wooden Spoons

DIY Christmas Gifts (1)

These wooden spoons may be my very favorite DIY gift of all time. I made these back in 2013 – and still use them on a daily basis. I even put them in the dishwasher – and they still look great!

Oven Baked Hanging Planters

DIY Christmas Gifts (2)

Oven bake clay is so fun to work with and I think something about the soft white finish gives it a sweet, feminine look. The results of these lacy hanging planters are exactly what I was hoping for – a planter that looks delicate and intricate, but is sturdy enough to hang and hold plants (and water!).

Handmade Pillow Cases

I love to add a pop of color by adding a fun pillow case to the bed. This tutorial is easy and uses a really cool technique that you’ll love to learn!

Handmade Soy Candles

DIY Christmas Gifts (5)

For years, I would make a large batch of soy candles each year for Christmas and try to make enough extras to last David and I for the rest of the year. They’re surprisingly easy to make and super fun!

No-Sew Fabric Covered Notebooks

For years, I have kept a stack of fabric covered notebooks nearby. I always keep one to sketch in, and love having them to give as gifts, too. I recently made a set of 40 in a single afternoon to give in the  welcome packets of the Immersion Retreat. They are incredibly easy to make and customize!
